Water View & Waterfront Dining
Mill Pond House nestled on the Mill Pond in Centerport offers fine dining with serene sunsets and picturesque views across to Centerport Harbor.

Prime is a high end waterfront restaurant with docking available (reservations needed). Whether you come by boat or car, Prime is sure to impress.

Their menu includes “primers,” raw bar favorites, mizu sushi, steaks and chops, surf and turf, and home-made desserts.

Head to The Whales Tale for low key, casual waterfront fun and food. This "hideaway on a half shell", overlooks Britannia Marina with western views. A beautiful sunset is a sure thing and so is the fresh fish caught from local waters & brought up the dock each & every morning. Their famous tropical cocktails and farm to table produce is an added bonus to the menu. This is an easy place to become a regular.
- Tip: Specials on Monday - Thursday including Taco Tuesdays and Raw Bar specials on Wednesday.

La Casa Cafe is one of the few Long Island restaurants located right on the beach.
